Labor Day is approaching

School has started and the month of August is winding down. This means that Labor Day is just around the corner. And what’s Labor Day without a parade? B-O-R-I-N-G!

Take a gander at this fun Labor Day parade photo from the archives of the Princeton Public Library. This float was created by the Paperhangers Local 444 in 1926. All the men of this local are wearing white painter’s uniforms. The description of the photo continues:

“People are lining both sides of the street. Flags are mounted on each side of the street. McCullough’s Cafe, Purdy's Confectioner, and Walsh Decorating Co. are seen on the north side of the street.”
